    Pipe dilema....

    Want a pipe for the bike this year, but torn between the Hindle and a D&D. So I'm curious as to what you guys would chose and why. The bike in question is a '98 Honda CBR900 (fireblade).
    My last bike CBR600 had a D&D and it was loud (good and bad), will the D&D be compairable to that, or louder cause of the additional displacement??

    took care of it, so no worries

    I'd expect the D&D to be similarly loud, but a different tonal characteristic.

    I'm not thrilled by the quality of either, so I'd go "other".

    If you chose 'other', why not 'enlighten' as to what you'ld lean towards.
    Which would have a more throughty (low) tone??
    Are Kerkers much different?

    I've seen reports that Kerkers have quality issues and look rough because of it.

    If you want mellow and not too loud then Yosh street (not race) or Hindle Stealth is the ticket.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    If I didn't have the Akro, I'd probably go for a Graves system...

    I put a M4 on this winter and it sounds great. I bought it from GSXR Bubba it had been crashed but M4 has parts you can buy from the company. It cost me $60 us plus shipping to fix it. Any company that will supply parts for your can can't be all that bad.

    I have Gianelli and it sounds amazing but I really love the sound of the Akrapovic on my boyfriends 600RR

    I have the same bike (98 Fireblade), and it has the Yosh pipe. Sounds awesome, especially after some of the packing wore out after the first couple years.

    Both those pipes are loud and of the cheaper quality I'd go for this one:

    Yosh DPS $380, good quality/price not to loud but has a nice sound.

    Akrapovic, I love the way my pipe is quiet at idle and really deep sounding.When you rev it up it sounds great.
